Natural disaster with magnitude 7.6 hits Caribbean; damage being assessed

Honduras: 7.6 Earthquake Triggers Tsunami alert

"Amazing trip to #Cancun ended last night with our condo shaking like insane as a result of an natural disaster off the coast of Honduras".

A magnitude 7.6 natural disaster has struck in the Caribbean Sea north of Honduras. Tsunami warnings were put into effect after the quake struck, but were ultimately canceled. The tremor struck in the sea about 125 miles (202 kilometers) north-northeast of Barra Patuca, Honduras, and 188 miles (303 kilometers) southwest of George Town, Cayman Islands.

Earlier alerts warned tsunami waves could hit the coasts of Belize, Cuba, Honduras, Mexico, Cayman Islands, and Jamaica, but these have been revised. Waves were expected to be up to 3 feet above tide level.

But two hours after the quake, the threat of a tsunami had passed, and the Tsunami Warning Center withdrew all advisories connected with the quake.
